My Philosophy & Approach of the Tarot

The Tarot is a far-reaching tool bearing messages and meaningful insights for those who seeks its knowledge. It is a voice that brings the jewels of your inner wisdom and creativity to your awareness and, therefore, unleashes your potential in whatever field you are in.

What is significantly important to me about my work is to be in presence of other people that I barely or intimately know or that I have never met or seen before and, in a few seconds, be able to enter into communication with them at a soul level. The superficial aspect of things then is totally put aside, and the connection between the person and I through the medium that the Tarot is generates blessings and provides concrete elements of support that will transform someone's issues, questions and life.

Each time a real connection is made there is a tangible release of energy that enhances the quality of people's life and their relationships to anyone and anything. And the magic is that the blessings carried through their own transformation reach the world, including myself.

Behind the inoffensive figures and images that appear on the cards, properly named Arcanas, hide the Masters of the past to whom a Tarot reader lends his or her voice and articulates out loud what someone might have:

Never felt free to say
Never felt free to think
Never felt free to feel
Never felt free to be

As a Tarot reader I lend my voice to that higher Self in order to articulate a reality that is somehow known and yet not realized; to speak a truth that is somehow understood and yet not assumed; to give the scope of a potential that is already there and yet not grasped.

My Major Core Principles as a Tarot Reader

No one can solve a problem with the same frame of mind that has created it

A tarot reading helps someone to escape a mind frame that is, at this point in time, not helpful in solving one's problem. It will give a person a larger perspective from which his or her perception can shift and bring new elements and a new dimension to one's issue. This inner shift will support the changes and the actions that need to take place in order for the individual to move on.

Planning is looking back so you can see forward

A tarot reading on a specific question will always reveal elements of the past that are in position to influence today's planning, decisions and/or goals. These elements are not necessarily obviously linked to anyone's current inquiry. Nevertheless, they are very much an underling force that puts a person in his or her present situation. The Tarot can help an individual to shine light on these subconscious movements. This new level of awareness, in return, will free that person from their grasp. Therefore, looking at the past can give someone the keys to their present, which in return, will give a base to one's future.

Once you've asked a question you work with the answer

This principle is valid for both the consultant and the Tarot practitioner. To ask questions to the Tarot requires discipline. On the consultant's hand, one must listen and fully take into account the message and how it applies to one's life. On the practitioners hand, one must trust the answer in the way it presents itself and, if there are obscure aspects to it, contemplation is one of the means to penetrate the deeper layers of the message. It is vitally important to treat all information as accurate and pertinent to someone's situation, rather than falling into the temptation to make it easier and do another draw for a same question. The Tarot's wealth lives within its symbolic nature. Therefore, the practitioner has the responsibility to decode, decrypt the hidden messages. The Tarot and its symbols have a mediatory function. Their power resides in the fact that they create a bridge between elements that have been separated within the psyche, or that seem in opposition. The Tarot's wisdom helps to restitute their unity. In that way, the Tarot has a therapeutic impact on the consultant.

A Tarot reader can perceive as far as he or she has evolved as a being

The alchemy between the mastery of the tool, the practitioner's personal growth and commitment to that growth is a constant and evolving dynamic. Within the realm of Tarot readings there is a perpetual refinement of knowledge and perception. The deliverer of the message - the Tarot reader - is constantly exposed to another layer of understanding, another level of interpretation of the same symbols that have remained unchanged for centuries. It's the practitioner's responsibility to keep this expansion going and flourishing so that, in return, he or she can offer depth and substance to his or her own interpretation and delivery.
